Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.InfoPath
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.InfoPath (in Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.dll)

value = instance.Errors
public abstract FormErrorCollection Errors { get; }

Property value

Type: Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.FormErrorCollection
A FormErrorCollection that represents the collection of FormError objects for the current form.


The FormErrorCollection collection is associated with a form's underlying XML document so that when an error occurs a FormError object that contains information about the error will be added to the collection. After you set a reference to the FormErrorCollection collection, you can access all of its properties and methods for managing the errors that occur within an InfoPath form.

This member can be accessed only by forms running in the same domain as the currently open form, or by forms that have been granted cross-domain permissions.

This type or member can be accessed from code running in forms opened in Microsoft InfoPath Filler or in a Web browser.


In the following code example, the Errors property of the XmlForm class is used to return the count of the number of errors and then display that value in a message box.

int formErrors = this.Errors.Count;
MessageBox.Show("Total number of errors: " + formErrors);
Dim formErrors As Integer = Me.Errors.Count
MessageBox.Show("Total number of errors: " & formErrors)
